Sunday, December 8 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM in the Oak Room
Childcare will be available at this event!
This class is one of two classes offered on the path to membership at UUCM, allowing participants to share their own spiritual journeys and to interactively explore a broad overview of Unitarian and Universalist history and what it means to be a UU. Visitors and friends who have attended both of these “Exploring UUism” classes are eligible to become members of UUCM. Current members and friends are very welcome to join in the class also. Facilitated by Melissa Martinson, Membership Ministry.
We’re excited to bring back Beloved Conversations again this winter. Around 40 UUCM members and friends have already gone through this immersive small-group curriculum for exploring race/ethnicity in our lives and in the life of this congregation. It is a meaningful and deep experience as we work to interrupt racism and dig into how racial truths shape our ways of being with each other. The curriculum holds space for compassion, grace, risk-taking and vulnerability. It is open to people who are white and people of color and uses a caucus model for same-race breakout discussions.
This may be the last offering of this program for a while. If you’ve been on the fence or would like to take it again (which we encourage!), don’t miss out. The cohort is limited to 14 people. Click here to register. Continue reading →
In these classes, participants have an opportunity to share more deeply their individual spiritual journeys and to explore whether membership in UUCM feels right for them. There are two classes in this series, each is offered on the second Sunday of the month at 11:15 am, following the service. Please email Gary Charles if you are in need of childcare during this event.
Participants will share their own spiritual journey. Together, we will interactively explore a broad overview of Unitarian and Universalist history and what it means to be a UU.

The Spring 2019 Soul Matters sessions are currently underway. Check back for future enrollment opportunities.
Soul Matters groups offer UUCM members and friends adult spiritual development and the opportunity to connect with each other and with our deepest selves. We gather in small groups of 6 to 10 people with a facilitator. Each group meets for 90 minutes every other week for a total of 6 sessions.
Our monthly worship themes are studied deeply through readings, inspirational quotes, questions and practices. Participants receive a resource packet each month with background information, questions for discussion and contemplation, spiritual exercises, wise words and other suggested resources.
In each meeting, we share what it was like to “live with” the exercises and the questions as we share where the topic took us, and hear the experience of others. This sharing is at the heart of the Soul Matters program and our experience is further deepened by the group’s sharing.
Newcomers and friends are especially welcome! Please contact Rev. Terri with any questions.
